Particl Marketplace Update πŸ›’

We're making some changes to Particl Marketplace in preparation for a better, more proactive, yet equally decentralized content moderation system powered by a decentralized LLM system.

This innovative approach stands at the intersection of blockchain and emerging LLM technology, and while it requires additional R&D before finalization, it shows great promise. We're confident this new system will significantly improve the current moderation process, improving both its effectiveness but also the general user experience.

Before the new moderation system is fully implemented, you can expect a Particl Desktop update featuring the necessary preparatory changes to drop. We'll keep you informed on the progress and provide more detailed information in a dedicated blog post once the system is nearly ready.

A few days ago, Firo pushed a new mandatory update that introduces changes to the transaction relay size limit to ensure proper handling and relaying of these transactions.

This release increases the maximum transaction relay size, adds new RPCs for Spark light wallet support, includes various optimizations to Spark and adding simplified sending to EX-addresses in the UI.

If you've enable Firo on BasicSwap, you must update your core wallet as soon as possible. Follow the instructions here to learn how to do it, or if you've installed BasicSwap using Ofrnxmr's bash scripts, you can simply run the upgrade script here.

We've pushed a rather larger update to BasicSwap DEX's master branch this week, which includes 7,246 new lines of code added and 2,502 ones that have been removed.

Decred Integration πŸŽ‰

The aforementioned update also introduces Decred on the master branch. That means you can now swap Decred with all available cryptocurrencies on BasicSwap, which coincidently marks the completion of its integration within the DEX.

We'd like to extend our thanks to the Decred community for supporting BasicSwap developers with the integration. πŸ™

Note: We will publish, next week on the Particl News blog, a detailed article that officially announces the completion of the integration as well as in-depth information about it.

Wownero Integration πŸŽ‰ πŸ•οΈ

This update also introduces Wownero on the master branch. Similarly to Monero, Wownero cannot be swapped using regular HTLC (Secret Hash) based swaps, but can be swapped using adaptor signature swaps.

Just like Decred, this update marks the completion of the Wownero integration into BasicSwap. As such, we'd like to extend our thanks to Ofrnxmr for completing the vast majority of the work that has gone into making this possible! πŸ™

Note: We will publish, next week on the Particl News blog, a detailed article that officially announces the completion of the integration as well as in-depth information about it.
